Art Althea


Desert contemporary artist Althea Sassman integrates handmade, hand-painted, and found recycled papers onto canvas to create a unique “painting” entirely from torn paper collage. This organic method involves tearing and gluing each individual paper piece while layering color, pattern and texture. Significant text from old book pages, postage stamps from her father’s childhood collection, or piano music sheets passed down from family generations all help to lead the observer in for more detail. Commissioned pieces often include personal memorabilia such as preferred wine labels, maps or ticket stubs from travels, and handwritten postcards.
